Louise Hay Talks Tapping

Written by: Nick Ortner

I will always remember my dear friend and mentor, Louise Hay. A few years back, I flew out to sunny San Diego to spend some time with her. Louise used Tapping in her own life and achieved amazing results. I had the opportunity to tap with Louise privately, but in this video, originally filmed for our Tapping World Summit, she was brave enough to tap on camera so that we could share it with you!

I’ve got to tell you… what Louise shares in this video is real, vulnerable, and extremely moving!

You can watch it here:

Louise was an extraordinary woman, for so many reasons. She sold over 50 million copies of her book, “You Can Heal Your Life“, which has been translated into 30 languages.

She was also the founder of “the” publishing house in the self-help world, Hay House Publishing, and produced countless written and audio publications that have enhanced the lives of millions of people around the world. The list goes on and on.

But none of those “achievements” define who she was, because the real magic in Louise was her love for life, her love for the world, her love for YOU (yes, you!) and the joy and beauty she spread. So you can imagine my fond memories of spending time with her in San Diego, especially in front of the camera so that we could share it with you.

Enjoy the video and make sure to leave your comments below.

Until next time…

Keep Tapping!

    I find Louise such a beautiful and gracious creature – this interview was one of the most helpful of the interviews I’ve watched. I will get on the right track – and I see in so many aspects of life where I need to tap to forgive, to comfort, sometimes just to be without sadness.
    Thank you.

  2. David Barriga says:

    Thank you, this info. will place me on the RIGHT track!

  3. Norma says:

    very powerful! just what i needed, in multiple ways. thank you so much! I will be sharing this

  4. G. Hopkins says:

    I am so thankful for having discovered EFT. This is the most amazing discovery! I have received amazing results from just the little tapping that I have done. I can only imagine what could happen if I did it on a regular basis. I have your book already, Nick. Need to go through it again. Thank you so much for sharing this interview with Louise Hay. What a charming lady. There are really a lot of helpful nuggets in this interview. I loved the tapping script that Louise recited. I was so reassured that all of us have angel(s) guiding and helping us, for one thing. I constantly forget this. God bless you, Nick, for your love and generosity! You are an inspiration and a Godsend!

    I have admired Louise Hay for many years and found her affirmations books helpful and recommended them to others. But this tapping is amazing. Since I am 78 and still working at releasing childhood trauma, this video was helpful in reducing that stressor which often comes up when I mistakenly analyze a situation as something that is out of my control. Your book and this video has shown me a way to release the past in an amazingly simple way. I am just a beginner but recognize TRUTH when I hear it and see it because it resonates within in an unmistakeable way. Thank you Nick for the gift you have given us all.

  6. Linda Czernysz says:

    I found this tapping video extremely informative and reassuring. If Louise Hayes can still have issues that need to be resolved at aged 86yrs. then I have hope that I can benefit also. The tapping experience may sound weird and off the wall however, I found it very calming and comforting.

    Thank you both for sharing.

  7. Maria Lúcia says:

    I´m from Portugal and I speak only a litle of English, it´s because I have some difficult to understand some words.
    But… I read the book about tapping in Portuguese and I was surprise with this technique because I try it in some friends with pain (head pain, migraine, knee pain, leg pain, shoulder pain…) and the pain disappeared. All people is happy with out pain. 🙂

    Today I was seen this video and again, I’m wonder with that.
    Thank you Nick and Louise.

  8. Erika says:

    Thank you so much for showing thhis! Very very powerful!

    My tears started running when Louise did the ‘affirmating-out’. I will do that on my different, though very heavy, issue going on in my life.

    Very healing … thank you again.

  9. palvi says:

    Amazing video. I loved the positivity. I’m a very negative person. I’ve had many setbacks in life and I want to get out of it. I pray tapping will help. Thank you so much

  10. E A says:

    I never thought of using angels in my positive tapping. My whole life, I know they have been present, guiding me to the healthier choice in life and protecting me from many horrors; but I never used them in tapping.

    I too had a painful memory when I was five that created a lot of fear in me…I just change “step-father” to this person’s name – every other word in the negative and positive tapping applied to my situation.

    When Louise was done – I didn’t know what to expect. Then out of the periphery of my eye – I saw two floating energies carry like a sheet that this memory was “playing out” on – like a projector projecting on a white sheet. The angels were each carrying a top corner.

    I wasn’t even thinking of addressing this memory but I guess it was time to! Thank you Louise and Nick!

  11. Martha Muraglia says:

    What I loved about the Louise Hay video was the simplicity and ease of tapping and doing affirmations in front of a mirror.

  12. joycemccallum says:

    Having followed louise since the early days and now waiting for your book I am pleased that you both show me how easy it is too do and combining the techniques love it. ( I already try this) But now getting the go ahead from both of you I love it!!

  13. Barbara M Fenner says:

    Lovely video, only just started tapping but have been a fan of Louise for years, but have never actually seen her, just read her books. What a beautiful person she is. Thank you both and Jessica too, finally coming to terms with my weight issues.

  14. Rick says:

    These videos are very interesting and validate the power of Tapping.

    I have been tapping for over 50 years, well before Tapping became a packaged system. I grew up in South America and one of the local women taught me to tap on certain points of the body to achieve positive thoughts and happiness. This was not done in the same way its done today, but it was quite powerful even as a young person.
    Today, Tapping has evolved and packaged and so many styles have been introduced. Slow Tapping, fast tapping, positive tapping, negative tapping, etc etc. if the intention is truly to help others, great.
    I continue helping people at my Holistic Center, as a Professional Life Coach and Experienced Tapping Practitioner. The goal is to help the community and tapping is a very important tool that I use.
    My practice has grown tremendously and thanks to the internet and Skype I can reach the world.

    Thanks for this opportunity,

  15. Wanda says:

    That was beautiful!! Thank you for sharing.

  16. Kusum Samaratunga says:

    I came to know about tapping when I listened to you at Hay House Summit. I have a chronic neckpain and one whole year I have been suffering. I went to my doctor, who recommended pain killers which I took for some weeks only. I donot like to take tablets of any kind. Then I was sent to physiotherapists, kiropractioners, accupuncture specialists etc, etc. Nothing has helped me so far.
    After listening to you and wathcing the movie on “Tapping”, I searced the web for your web page and I was so delighted to find it.I just watched you tapping with Louise Hay and now I know I can heal myself by tapping. I have just started and shall let you know my progress. I know this is the solution to my neck pain.
    Bless you Nick!


  17. David Gontier says:

    Thank you so much for this video. It is POWERFUL.
    Thank you Nick and Louise.
    Can’t wait for more video from you Nick.

  18. Corina Vanana Valcan says:

    Love the Video and what She Did about the Tapping. But it is also Good for Here and the Future. I also Meditate the Same for the Future.

  19. Saida says:

    It was beautiful and touching, and deeply healing for me, i tapped along with the video, thank you both so much, i am very grateful

  20. Ann sanders says:

    I am new at tapping but I absolutely loved this interview. I am familiar with Louise but to hear what she went through was such a help. I really had a break through on an issue I wasn’t even aware of. Thanks so much to the both of you!

  21. aruna says:

    Lovely to see Louise Hay looking so amazing at 87!! The interview on Recovery 2.0 with Tommy Rosen has really encouraged me to Tap & heal…science of the simple!

  22. Nancy says:

    Thank you so much Nick and Louise! It’s so simple and I felt a huge difference just in following along in the video, one time. I really appreciate you sharing your knowledge and I will pass this along.
    I’m so grateful! Thank you so much. Many blessings to you. Nancy

  23. patti says:

    this video was so awesome! this bought tears to me too! i will be tapping to this all the time. its very inspirational. thanks for sharing it and helping so many people. i’m hoping to get rid of this anxiety i’v had for 20 years!thanks again nick and louise.

  24. Laurie Young says:

    I am very new to tapping and find myself watching and reading everything I can get my hands on re EFT. There is something inside me that just knows there is power in this tool for me.

    I watched your interview with Louise just a couple of days ago. I stumbled upon it be accident really…or perhaps not by accident at all. Perhaps when the student was ready, the teacher appeared.

    I was spellbound by Louise’s ease of being. At one point as I was tapping along with you both…at the part where she says you have a guardian angel…I felt this surge of emotion come out of me and I began to cry. I felt as though a huge weight was leaving my body…weight of pain I had carried since childhood really. For the first time in my life, I truly believed I wasn’t alone. I felt safe.

    I can honestly say it was a life changing moment for me. And I know that sounds so corny…but I did definitely feel some sort of shift right then and there.

    Thank you for your work. I’m feeling truly inspired!


  25. Jocelyne Poirier says:

    Just wonderful! I almost fell into tears. I could feel the emotions come up. I have just started tapping and i think it is very exciting to be able to let go of some old patterns with just an easy technique.

    Thank you for sharing this interview.


  26. Janice Juniper says:

    Thank you, thank you that was brilliant, Nick and Louise. Louise showed us a different dimension we can also use .Regards, Jan

  27. Suzanne Byrd says:

    Hello Nick and Louise,

    I wanted to thank you so much Nick for sending me the video with you and Louise Hay tapping. I love you both and it was great. I have Louise’s book “You Can Heal Your Life” and have had it for many years and love it…I go back to it form time to time and have told many people about it. I started tapping a couple of years ago (but did not stay with it long enough)right before you were writing your book. I have not gotten it yet but plan to very shortly and will be doing your 7 weeks Tapping Class in a week or two. I have many things to heal in my life and especially around money and moving forward….getting unstuck after my Mother died in 2007. I know between you and Louise (Louise is my dear Mother’s name by the way, so I feel a special connection with Louise Hay because of that), I will be able to clear my blocks with tapping and affirmations which I love. I just need to stay with it, because I do not always feel any different after tapping so I need to go deeper with it to break through the walls. Thank you again so much and I look forward to the 7 week class very soon…God bless you both and keep up the grand work you do Nick and Louise. May you continue to be blessed in every way. Kindest Regards, Suzanne Byrd

  28. Jill says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I just found out about tapping by chance a few weeks ago and am excited to try it and see what changes it could bring. This was a very genuine and authentic interview, thank you for sharing.

  29. Kirinyo Kirinyet says:

    Thank you Nick and Louise Hay for this life experience Tapping. It felt so wonderful doing it with you and was so powerful when the Queen of Affirmations did the last bit. I COULD FEEL THE RELAXATION TOO THOUGH I TAPPED ON HER ISSUES.

    I wish you health, wealth and harmony. You will continue enjoying God’s blessing and those wonderful things that you want for yourselves in the course of assisting others.

    Regards and best wishes.


  30. Rita says:

    Awesome!!!! very nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

  31. Deb Asfour says:

    Thank you…thank you…thank you! One cannot imagine all the transitions I have had to cope with since 2011! This is the first time I feel a ense of hope! Thank you!

  32. Joan Berkel says:

    Dear Nick

    I have been listening to your newsletter and other info you send to me but this one was great. Looking at this I have a question. Is it possible to use tapping if you are getting Altzeimer’s or can you do it for a loved one with Altzeimers. Would be happy if you can comment

    Thanks for your teaching on tapping it has helped me but I think I need to order the complete tapping solution. Will do so later in the month


  33. Carol Farrauto says:

    I have read your book the tapping solution and really have made tapping part of my life and want to make it my life’s purpose. I have been a huge advocate of Louise Hay and many of her author’s. To watch you with Louise Hay was just so beautiful it brought a tear to my eye. The two of you were so authentic and it was so amazing TO BE PART OF IT! Thank you so much Nick and Louise for sharing!

  34. Waltraut Taylor-Haass says:

    Thank you for bringing this to me to watch. It brought tears to my eyes. I only heard of tapping not so long ago through a friend who sent me your audios. I know you are right that we can heal ourselves, but knowing and doing it are two differnt things. I will get to know tapping better with time and spread the word to others.

    Best regards

    Nice to see how it is done!!

  36. Gundula Guldner says:

    So, so powerful. Thank you so much to both of you. Nick, for posting this and Lousie for sharing your vulnerability.
    I tapped along and it had a huge effect on me. Initially triggering something but then more tapping resolved the issue.
    Thanks so much I feel heaps lighter and happier!
    Happy tapping everyone!

  37. David Bolding Sr says:

    This Tapping System is a incredable tool to help you Manage any Situation You Maybe Dealing with in Life. Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!

  38. neelo says:

    Wow…..I was tapping along with you two and once Louise started the affirmations, there are tears kept coming and I felt like all the feelings came out of me with these tears. I see them as cleansing tears 🙂 Love Tapping and by the way, I am using it most of my days :)I will do my level 3 soon and can’t wait for it. Lots of love from the beautiful and sunny Sydney, Australia.

  40. jayne avery says:

    Having just learnt to be an EFT facilitator, and also having been tapping for a few months now, I am so happy to see this being shared. I am also sharing it with as many people I can. It’s so freeing and simple! Louise is amazing. Big thank you to her and to you Nick. It made me cry when she got to the angel part, as that’s what I needed too. Brilliant stuff, thank you xx

  41. valerie says:

    this was an inspiring video and it cannot be ignored thank you Nick And Louise for this very great technique and more importantly for the preciseness and depth in it ..I must thank my sister for introducing it to me she tried it and it worked so she is spreading the efficacy of it to everyone she meets who needs it

  42. valerie lyke says:

    this was an amazing video and the very aspect of the positive feelings are too much to ignore ..thank you Nick and Louise for this inspiring video .I have to thank my sister who introduced me to it

  43. Ali Bramall says:

    What beautiful poise and strength of being Louise has – such an honour to see her working in this way. Thank you Nick.

  44. SuSun says:

    Thank you….
    I haven’t felt so inspired in quite a while.
    I’m inspired by how beautiful you are, Louise, and I don’t mean for 86. 🙂
    I have just finished writing a song using some of your amazingly beautiful words.
    When I figure out how, I’d like to send it to you. I’d love for you and Nick to hear it. You are welcome to use the song if you like, if it’s alright for me to use your words. The words I used are,” It’s time for you to be free now. You can run and dance and play, and be who you were meant to be, be who you were born to be. It’s safe to feel safe. It’s safe to be safe. It’s safe to let go. There’s a great freedom and a great love surrounds you, and all is truly well in you life now. And So It Is.”
    Thanks to you both. <3

  45. Leah Mason says:

    I have been reading, watching, and enjoying Louise Hay since the 1980’s. This session was personally moving and most helpful for me. I went back and I did it along with you both. I look forward to really learning more and using tapping as a wonderful resource in my life. Much joy and gratitude!

  46. Suzie says:

    Thank you Nick & Louise! This was extremely helpful in bringing up a long buried childhood experience that needs to be healed and forgiven. I thought it was long gone but I realized through tapping, I need more healing around it. My neck has been tight like a vice and tapping indeed brought more movement and less pain in this area. I will tap again this evening to see if I can rid myself of even more pain.
    Much love, Suzie

  47. Ann Marie Radix says:

    Dear Nick,
    I thoroughly enjoyed the EFT session with Louise Hay and you. When she spoke about having her Angels around her I felt a presence enfold me as if to say, you have Angels too, and I got choked up with emotion. It felt like something moved in my inner being and I could not stop yawning. I felt love. I am love. I am 71 years of age and EFT came into my life 10 years ago and I have been using it successfully since that time.

    Many Blessings to you and Louise Hay and thank you for the presentation. You are doing an amazing service.

    Ann Marie

  48. Monica says:

    LOVE YOU! LOUISE! thank you so much for this messages, really special, and beautiful…I don´t have the oportunity to read your books, and I really want to read your books, and I going to ask if here in my country, I can found your books…thank you! so much, love you, God bless you! and take care!Monica.

  49. Karen says:

    Thank you, Thank you, I had tears in my eyes, this is one of the most beautiful experiences of vulnerability, strength and transformation..

  50. Christine Sigg says:

    Dear Nick,

    Thank you for this video with Louise Hay! I was very moved about her sharing. And also thank you for keeping reminding me to keep on tapping every day. It is a wonderful tool. I do smile at myself in the mirror since I am 16 years old (I heard then from an old wise mean, that you look into your eyes, which are the reflection of your soul, and smile) – I am 71 now. Everyday I give myself a smile and lots of love.

    I am very thankful for your insights, for your love and compassion towards everyone.

    Kind Regards,
    Christine Sigg
